OCW Review : ASUS P4P800S-E Wireless Edition

"ASUS P4P800S-E is based on the 848P chipset to capture the user base where they prefer Intel brand and would not want to invest additional RAM modules where price is a factor. An additional feature on this board is the Wi-Fi card that comes with the package. You can use this card to login to an access point. The most interesting thing about it is that it can be turned into a software access point ! That is to say, it could be your base station. This board also provides overclocking capabilities. In our tests, we managed to push our 2.4C all the way to 280MHz FSB on the GEiL DDR533 module."

Vantec Nexus Fan Controller @ Creative Mods

"The scenario: You have four case fans, but all have different CFM ratings and your case temps fluctuate more than your Grandma´s cholesterol levels. What´s to do? Vantec has the perfect answer. It´s the Nexus fan controller. Available in silver and black and fully adjustable on four separate channels, this is sure to even out those case temps once and for all. There are several different models available, today I look at the NXP-201-SL."

Dell Inspiron 8600 @ TrustedReviews

"As long as I can remember Dell has been at the forefront of the very competitive laptop market and has always had some amazing machines in its lineup. The Inspiron 8600 does not disappoint here as it offers some of the very latest in mobile technology and you would have a hard time finding another laptop with so many high-end components in it."

Legion Hardware (Albatron GeForceFX 5950 Ultra)

"Albatron certainly have strengthened my views on the GeForceFX 5950 Ultra GPU. Unfortunately, after testing the Gigabyte GeForceFX 5950 Ultra I was left with a great deal of doubt and disappointment regarding the GPU. The card ran consistently hot, which restricted any kind of overclocking success. The most disappointing aspect of the Gigabyte card was its look and feel, that strongly resembled a reference board. Surprisingly, this is how the majority of GeForceFX 5950 Ultra cards have been presented to the market, featuring nothing more than the reference cooling design. Fortunately Albatron have put a little more effort into their solution, pairing it with their ´Wise Fan´ technology."

Lamps Electronics Roundup @ Creative Mods

"It´s no secret that the UV spectrum isn´t well known for it´s brilliance as you can see below. The spread on the LEDs is wide and directed into three separate spotlight style beams. This is perfect for applications where specifically directed ultra violet light is necessary.
It´s the LED Dual Fan Grill in Blue/Blue. This fan grille has two rings of brilliance housed in clear acrylic as well as a PCI plate that has a very welcomed attached rocker switch (something many companies forget to include). Lengthy bolts for installation are also provided."

SilverStone B032FW Enclosure Review @ TweakTown

"In the not too distant past, the thought of getting an aluminum case meant pouring out a huge chunk of change. While there are some high-dollar aluminum cases out there, it is getting easier to find them in a more reasonable price range lately. Come join us as we take a look at a low cost aluminum case with some very high end features and see for yourself if it is worth the meager entry fee!"

"It´s time for the battle of the big guns in the AMD Athlon 64 motherboard department. We´ve collected three high-end performance motherboards from Gigabyte, MSI and ABIT which are all based on VIA´s K8T800 chipset and tossed them all in the ring to fight it to the death with our still shiny Athlon 64 3200+ processor.
